The most recent thread about Normandy hubs was mine and nobody said that all Normandy hubs were cheesy. They made cheesy hubs and they made the Normandy Luxe Competition hubs that were original equipment on lots of PX10s and Gitane TdFs. They are professional grade hubs. That's probably what you have. Harris Cyclery has the fronts only. I see them all the time on eBay. A grubby used pair just sold for $45.

My '74 PX10 has low flange Maillard 700 Peugeot Trophy hubs. They're not original. It came with the high flange version of the same hub from the factory. They're the ones with plastic dust caps.

I doubt very seriously if you have French threads on your hubs.

Super Champion rims, either tubular or clincher, would be appropriate. They show up on eBay once in a while. I'm sure you won't be able to find the proper Robergel 3 star spokes, but who'll know?
